This week Durban born rapper, Duncan, dropped a bombshell explaining to his fans why he hasn’t been pushing (promoting) Zakwe’s new music on his social media platforms.
This comes after Zakwe has made what many view as a pretty good come back to relevance in the music industry with his latest offering titled Sebentin Cassper Nyovest and Musilohiq.
As expected on the track Zakwe serves bars on this track, and a beat is something abstract from the rudimentary trending trap sound/feel on most commercial Hip Hop songs in SA currently.
Those that know Zakwe and Duncan, who both grew up in KwaMashu, will tell you of the bromance the two have had since they both blew up. Often compared to each other in their style, there has never been hints of a strained relationship between the two of them until this week.
On Monday morning Duncan took to his Facebook account to tell and show fans how Zakwe has blocked him on Instagram and Twitter.
“I know that most of you will feel sad but I thought I should show you guys so that, we all know what is going on but I am just like all of you guys, I don’t know why I’ve been blocked. He is my friend, I will always respect him. Whether he likes it or not, I like him. He has his reasons why he blocked me!” he said.
Besides this explanation, Duncan also hinted that fans have been expecting a response from him with regards to one particular line that is seemingly directed at him by Zakwe on Sebentin.
“I’m not a storryteller, I’m a golden seller…” – Zakwe, Sebentin
After his two albums, Balaclava and Street Government, Duncan has been largely praised for his storytelling ngoMageba on his songs, and it didn’t take long for fans to treat this line as a diss towards him by Zakwe.
After the initial post on why he is no longer promoting Zakwe’s music he went on to explain there will be no subliminal response from him on any song as he is not treating this as beef between the two of them.
On Wednesday morning he was singing a different tune however saying, “storytelling in rap is probably my favorite form of it…”
